When I register on an open registration account with no email validation, it should say "Please login to continue."

When email validation is required, it should say "Please check the email and confirm your email address to continue."

When I confirm the email address, it should say "Thank you for confirming your email address. [Your account is awaiting approval. / Please log into continue.]"

When the email address is already in use, it should give an error that says that.

Currently? It does nothing! If its successful you're thrown back to the default page. Users are confused, they message an admin or their friend and go "Uhhh I'm not sure if it went through." And maybe it's explained to them that pleroma is a buggy mess and they stick around anyway.

This is not akkoma-specific, this is a long-term issue with pleroma-fe and by far one of the most grating for new users when their first experience with the software is this. Let's do better and show what a fully finished pleroma can look like!
